Explanation of Concepts:
Cisgender, also known as cis or cissexual, describes individuals whose gender identities match the sex they were assigned at birth. For example, a person who was born female and identifies themselves as a woman or girl. Similarly, a person who was born male and identifies as a man or boy could also be described as cisgender. It is important to note that individuals who are cisgender may or may not be straight since gender identity is different from romantic or sexual attractions.
Gender-fluid individuals experience changes in the gender expression that feels natural to them and/or their gender identity over time. For instance, a gender-fluid person may identify as a man one week and a woman the next. Similarly, they could alternate between agender, bigender, non-binary, or any combination thereof. The concept of gender fluidity thus recognizes the existence of gender as a spectrum and not a simple binary. It emphasizes that gender identity may alter or fluctuate. It should be noted that gender fluidity is not synonymous with sexual fluidity since gender fluidity pertains to flexibility with regard to the gender characteristics and social constructs that one is willing to adopt while sexual fluidity refers to flexibility as to which gender(s) one is attracted to.
Those who experience their gender identity as going beyond the traditional man and woman binary may often refer to themselves as non-binary. In other words, individuals whose gender identity does not fit exclusively into the traditional categories of "man" or "woman" may be said to be non-binary. There is great diversity among those who identify as non-binary, however, as some identify with some elements of the traditional gender binaries while others reject the traditional notions of men and women completely.
People who identify as transgender are those whose internal sense of gender does not match the sex they were assigned at birth. Transgender is thus an umbrella identity that encompasses the various ways a person's gender identity can be different from the sex they were born with. Some transgender individuals (but not all) undergo medical procedures (such as hormone therapy, hair growth or hair removal, and/or various surgeries) to make their bodies more consistent with their lived and experienced gender identities.
Individuals who deviate from binary gender norms sometimes refer to themselves as genderqueer. As opposed to people who identify merely as non-binary, gender fluid, agender or similar, many who identify as genderqueer actively associate the term with challenging or subverting conventional gender distinctions. The urge to question gender expectations can range from good-natured "play" with gender to more deliberate political provocations in the service of highlighting gender stereotypes in our culture.
Human beings with reproductive anatomies that do not fit the traditional classifications of male or female are sometimes said to be intersex. For instance, an individual may be born with traditionally feminine facial features and curves, while their inner anatomy is more like that of a traditional male. Or a person might have genitalia that fall somewhere between the typical male and female classifications. For example, a girl might be born with a noticeably large clitoris, while a boy might be born with a noticeably small penis or a scrotum that is divided so that it looks like labia. Likewise, some intersex people have mosaic genes, with some cells having XX (female) chromosomes and others XY (male) chromosomes.
People who do not specifically identify as any gender sometimes refer to themselves as agender, with the prefix "a-," indicating "no" or "none." While some agender individuals characterize their identity as having no gender, others associate their agender identity with being "gender neutral," "gender free," "ungendered," or "genderblank." Other terms in this category include "gender void," "null gender," and "genderless." An agender person typically feels as though they are neither a man nor a woman, nor a combination of male and female traits. However, as opposed to identities such as genderqueer or non-binary, the agender identity is often viewed as a statement of not having a gender identification at all.
